On the eve of his duel with fellow big-hitter Chris Gayle in tomorrow's Melbourne Big Bash League derby, Pietersen lamented the dwindling interest in Tests among kids.
     
"Something has to be done for Test cricket to survive, because I know first-hand, having coached kids from all around the world about a month ago with my foundation in Dubai, that they've got no interest in Test cricket. None," said Pietersen after arriving back in Melbourne from England.
     
Star cricketers Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo will turn up for the Renegades tomorrow even as the West Indies team gears up for the third Test against Australia at Sydney on Sunday.
     
"The ICC controls world cricket and they should say: 'Right, we need Gayle, we need even (Kieron) Pollard, we need (Darren) Sammy, we need (Dwayne) Bravo, we need Andre Russell'. Andre Russell is bowling at 150km/h, whacking big sixes in the Big Bash. He should be doing that in a Test match, he shouldn't be doing it here," Pietersen cited
